Neonatal Neurocritical Care Program
Neurologic diseases or injuries present at birth can have a lasting impact on your child’s growth and development. Early intervention is critical, as a baby’s brain has a remarkable ability to heal. The Neonatal Neurocritical Care Program at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia provides coordinated, ongoing care for infants who are born with or are at risk for neurologic disease, neurological damage or brain injury. We strive to maximize your child’s developmental potential by providing meticulous neurologic care and rehabilitation as early as possible.
Highlighting the importance of multidisciplinary collaboration represented by the Neonatal Neurocritical Care program, this case follows the care of a full-term female infant with a rare congenital vascular disease.
The Neonatal Neurocritical Care Program is one of only a few programs in the nation currently offering specialized care for babies with neurologic diseases and brain injury beginning before birth and extending throughout childhood.

These experts partner with referring physicians and other specialists throughout the Hospital to provide the highest quality care for babies with neurologic disorders.
